Summer Camp: Camp Mammoth

Camp Mammoth

Millions of years ago, giants roamed the earth. Sometimes standing more than 14 feet tall, mammoths and mastodons towered over the lands…and now they’re coming to Victoria.

This summer, campers will be on the lookout for these fascinating creatures. Campers will explore the feature exhibition Mammoths: Giants for the Ice Age and the collection areas, build mini-dioramas, dig for fossils and much more.
